Image Details:

A single eaglet in this nest (which had three last year), Mom & eaglet relaxing while patiently waiting for dad to bring in a meal. The fact that her foot is hanging off of the branch is a sign that she is relaxed & not on alert. Another sign of an eagle not being on alert is when it is preening.
